The Army-Navy Screen Magazine Number 22, 1944
  • 01 Burma Outpost: Short film about Station X in Burma and the problem of supply.

  • 02 A Few Quick Facts: Short animated film in a lovely constructivist style that illustrates random statistics and facts about the war.

  • 03 Quentin Reynolds Talks About G.I. News: Short film narrated by Quentin Reynolds, which gives a behind-the-scenes look at Yank magazine and the Armed Forces Network.

  • 04 Letter From Iran: Phil Spitalny and his All-Girl Orchestra (from The Hour Of Charm radio show) play an unique arrangement of "People Will Say We're In Love" from  Oklahoma! by Rodgers and Hammerstein.

  • The Army-Navy Screen Magazine 22 1944: complete newsreel.

The Army-Navy Screen Magazine was produced by the U.S. Army Signal Corps Pictorial Service, under the supervision of Col. Frank Capra, who came up with the idea. It was released twice a month and shown to military troops as a 20-minute newsreel.

"By the end of the war, the Army-Navy Screen Magazine reached an enormous weekly audience of 4.2 million. It had become for American soldiers all over the world a communal experience that greatly influenced their perception of the war."

It featured short documentary films, news from back home, and short training films like Dr. Seuss' Private Snafu cartoons.   I've uploaded the entire Screen Magazine and also each segment as a separate file (some editions are comprised of 1 long film, though).

Description at the National Archives: "Reel 1, Part 1, supplies are hauled to a Burma observation post by native carriers and dropped by parachute. Part 2 (animation) depicts the mileage flown by the Air Transport Command, the growth of the Navy, and the danger of fire from cigarettes. Part 3, Quentin Reynolds lauds the Army news service and Norman Cousins presents an award to the Yank magazine staff. (Reel 2) Shows brief scenes of the reporting, editing, printing, and distribution of Yank. Part 4, Phil Spitalny and his all-girl orchestra play selections from 'Oklahoma.'"

As always, any error or typo is mine and if you enjoy my uploads or if you intend to make $ or otherwise profit from these files, please consider making a donation to a veteran's charity of your choice and/or itself. Thanks. :)
